The Big Show: Inside ESPN's Sportscenter

Overview

For the first time, Keith Olbermann and Dan Patrick, the tag-team partners of ESPN's award-winning SportsCenter, bring what People magazine calls their "Letterman-like loopiness and Koppelesque smarts" to the printed page in The Big Show. The Big Show gives you the honest, horrifying, yet always entertaining story of two men, three cameras, and highlights run amok: that voodoo that Keith and Dan do to make The Big Show run slicker than Pat Riley's "do"; Keith's controversial list of should-be baseball Hall of ...

Overview

For the first time, Keith Olbermann and Dan Patrick, the tag-team partners of ESPN's award-winning SportsCenter, bring what People magazine calls their "Letterman-like loopiness and Koppelesque smarts" to the printed page in The Big Show. The Big Show gives you the honest, horrifying, yet always entertaining story of two men, three cameras, and highlights run amok: that voodoo that Keith and Dan do to make The Big Show run slicker than Pat Riley's "do"; Keith's controversial list of should-be baseball Hall of Famers (100 of them, for Pete's sake); Dan and Keith's on-air flubs - errors that make even Bill Buckner's blunder seem minor; and Keith and Dan's complaints about sports idiocies - and each other!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Fans of ESPN's evening sports show who want to know more about their heroes, together since 1992, will enjoy this joint effort, which covers each of their lives from the cradle onward. Their appeal, they claim, is that they take sports, but not themselves, seriously so one of their stocks in trade is light banter, the other being a repertory of catchphrases. They recall their triumphs and their flubs and offer advice to young people who want to become sportscasters. One of the rare subjects on which Olbermann and Patrick disagree is the possible election of Pete Rose to baseball's Hall of Fame, which leads to their list of recommendations of the 100 players who ought to be elected. They also list the 10 athletes they consider tops and the greatest games they ever watched, and they lament the blackmailing of cities to build new stadiums and the perversions of baseball-card collecting. The writing is lively, but the authors' self-described "healthy narcissism" may not strike readers as all that healthy. May
